National Birthday Celebrations

National Event

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Loving Sai Ram to you!

With the Divine Blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, it gives me immense pleasure to announce details of our National Birthday Celebrations to be held on the 23rd November 2013 in London, to mark the 88th Year of the Advent of our Divine Master.

The theme for this year's birthday celebrations reflects Bhagawan's Message of Harmony through Love and is titled 'Sai Premabandhan - The Unifying Bond of Divine Love'.

Bhagawan Baba has taught us that only Divine Love can bring about the brotherhood of man on earth! He says that only when we allow such Love to take birth in our hearts, nurture it carefully and grow, can we claim to be celebrating the Birthday of Sai - the One who is Eternal, without a Beginning or End, beyond Birth or Death!

"You must be thinking about the gift you have to offer Swami on this Birthday. You can be happy that you have given Swami a proper gift only when you love your fellowmen, share their sufferings, and engage yourselves in serving them. That is the only gift I wish for. The present given to God has to be pure, steady and selfless Love. On this birthday I have only one desire. I am desiring this only to promote your aanandha." Sri Sathya Sai Speaks, Volume 15, 55

During these celebrations, let us contemplate on such Love, fill our Hearts with its sweetness and pledge to grow and expand in it!!

We are thus delighted to bring to the programme this year, two very eminent personalities as our esteemed guests to share their love for Bhagawan with all of us: Mrs Janet Bock-Bicker, and Mr Sikkil Gurucharan.

Mrs Janet Bock-Bicker from California, our guest speaker, is a well known and ardent devotee of Bhagawan since 1969. Along with Richard Bock, she was blessed by Bhagawan Baba with many rare opportunities and divine experiences which they were privileged to capture on film and share as memorable videos that gave the world glimpses into the Life and Message of the Divine Avatar, Our Lord Sathya Sai Baba. Aura of Divinity, Advent of the Avatar, Universal Teacher- to name just a few of their films, are treasured by the global Sai family with great joy and gratitude.

Mr Sikkil Gurucharan from Chennai, our guest musician, is a young but highly acclaimed and widely travelled vocalist from the Carnatic music tradition. He had the rare privilege during the 85th Birthday Celebrations in 2010, when he was blessed by Bhagawan to offer two concerts in His Divine Presence in the Sai Kulwanth Hall.

Let us come together on this grand occasion with family and friends, to celebrate this 'bond of divine love' that strings us all into a beautiful garland of humanity, and offer this in gratitude at the feet of our Divine Lord Sathya Sai.
